What we're saying is that kids need to be back in school and that school leaders across the country need to be making plans to do just that there's going to be the exception to the rule, but the rule should be that kids go back to school this fall, and where there are little flare ups or hot spots that can be dealt with on a school by school or a case by case basis. You responded in a tweet and impart that tweet said you have no plan and it went on to say I wouldn't trust you to care for a house plant. Let alone my child. Is that hyperbole or do you have that little faith in the Department of Education and this administration's ability to guide the country and school reopening in this pandemic, I have that little fate, but that's not a deficit of trust. But I monopolize, it's informed by the conversations that I have with superintendents with families and with students every day. So I said with so many people feel in my position on this guide about what I heard from them from the educators families on the ground, and again they have politicized that the trump administration politicises pandemic, and they're rushed to to reopen states to be the most irresponsible. The pacesetters in that way, which is now resulted in surges of corona virus, infection, rates, and fatalities is the same reason why the Russian to reopen schools, politicises pandemic, and they want to present a return to normalcy as much as possible but my district Massachusetts. Includes many of the hardest hit communities that he's like Chelsea in Randolph to cities that were hardest hit in the entire Commonwealth in again my team and I we speak rightly students and educators and superintendent throughout my district and their trauma Israel. We just cannot rush to. The consequences are unbearable. Our schools don't have the resources. They don't have the P.. They may not even have the staff and space to physically distant students in the classroom in compliance with the safety guidelines that were set out by the CDC, so it's placing our educators administrators impossible position teacher said to me the other day. Every situation is a bad one, and that is because of the failed leadership of the trump administration. So let let's talk about just in our last minute or so How about at the Commonwealth?.

"In the same way that hurt in harm were precise, we must be precise in prescriptive in legislating, healing, injustice, and so black lives, matter than black Beta matters, and that's why I've continued to push for the collection in disaggregation of racial data and the public reporting of it in the midst of this pandemic to ensure an equitable public response. Let's talk about that. You and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren wrote a letter to HHS Secretary Alex as our health and Human Services you requesting report the details, the administration's response to the racial disparities. We've seen as a result of the outbreak, and you note that the administration has failed to submit reports that were due in twenty, seventeen and twenty nineteen as a result of the affordable. Affordable Care, act that would have also been on racial disparities in healthcare. You suggested that failure to do that reporting and have the eye on the ball. In the two thousand seventeen in two thousand nineteen report contributed to the the poor federal response here can. Can you walk us through that a little more? And and what do you hope to get from the information you're requesting? Well again, we knew anecdotally that black and Latte next communities would be hit hardest given a decades of unequal access to healthcare again. The Co Morbidity of Structural Racism. Transportation deserts food apartheid systems. In dominating the essential workforce's so our exposure rates are higher, and then we represent higher infection rates in, and sadly higher fatalities as well so we knew anecdotally what would happen. I'm history of him us. In the face of a public health crisis, black and brown communities disproportionately suffer, and this pandemic was no object exception so from the onset Senator Warren and I led calls to collect them report this demographic data to guide our policy, making to ensure an equitable response in a bad law are edible data. Collection Act was included parts of it into the cares act. And Congressional mandate right and yet instill with that mandate we see this administration has failed to provide Congress and the public with these reports so Senator Warren. I wrote to hhs a helping him services this week. Demanding an update instead of increasing transparency, this administration has chosen to reroute important covid nineteen data like racial disparities from the sea species public database to private portal operated by political appointees at HHS. This is another demonstration them politicizing a pandemic, and it's just a shame what? What about the possibility that streamlining that dated HHS and I understand streamlining his a loaded word, so let's say directing the data to AJ. Might be a better way to streamline the data to make it easier to get information. Is that possible? Do we know why the administration some is is redirecting that data now? This isn't the time to be changing. The Algorithms of how data reported. We're in the midst of a pandemic one that we began from behind. We started from a position of being behind which has. Has Everything to do with the science denials press briefings that functioned like disinformation campaigns and the criminal negligence of this administration, which persists so this latest effort to obstruct transparency is just another shameful attempt by administration to keep the American people in the dark hot. It's incompetence to further politicise pandemic. It is it is dangerous, and it will only result and putting more lives at risk. And there must be encountered. Ben Takover reform so I can continue to hold the administration accountable. We've been talking about Dan Racial disparities. We've been talking about the flow of the data. Is there any data that you think our country is doing a good job at collecting and staying aware of right now when it comes to the pandemic?.

"And I began to understand the questions and my hopefulness in a different way. and I rewrote the end of the play to feature the question. What monuments will we build when we look back on this moment? Melinda? We have that sound. We have that Latte that new ending, so let's listen to it here. I love studying history in playing my part. I, love the speeches and the crowds. Maybe, that's why I wear this Red Co.. But time moves in one direction. And I wanted two hundred and fifty years from now. What memorials will we build? Do. You have a hypothesis. You Know I. I would love to imagine that will see this moment. As the beginning of a new kind of America and the beginning of a different kind of reckoning west, who gets to claim the mantle of a founding father and founding patriot. It's also been interesting. Because a number of the plays are grappling with big history, even though the prompt is very small and very personal each playwright is taken a very personal look at a big. Big Questions. And the place. Are Hopeful, but they're also a reckoning and. enjoyed. Seeing them come together. So, that's a great pivot to talk about the play that came out today the fourth because it does offer a contrast in its approach to these big events. I hear joy and celebration in Asia. At least that's what I hear in part in your play when you get to Christine, greenidges play. It's a couple on a first date. They meet at the State House. The man's phone doesn't stop buzzing. There's an argument about the location and what it means. Let's listen to a little bit. Seriously get that. It's nothing. Let's reset. Sister Clothes. Please just walk with me. The point is. This, isn't me? Park began the state. House isn't me. Me Is inside that Park, shouting, demanding or It should have been. And then this it goes on to ask questions about who can feel comfortable at powerful spaces like the state, house or the monument across the street, which was where she thought they were meeting This challenges. Ask to think about the role. We occupy in the new world going forward. How did that resonate with you? And what did that play revealed you about how people are thinking about this moment? Well. You know we were were were in a moment where we're time is operating in such a strange way, right? We feel so stuck in the moment the days go by. We don't know what day it is, and we're also constantly projecting ourselves into after right, but what's interesting about these place is the past the future and the present. Come together right. Kirsten and I and also cater. We're trying to talk about the future, but we can't. Without acknowledging what's happening right now. and this moment of tremendous flux that were all experiencing finding restructuring to find ways to articulate how to talk about this. So the question of what will history Tepe, what will they be teaching a history books in two hundred years? is a profoundly I. Keep coming back to this question of like. American what does it mean to be American? And it may be that because the. Crops are taking place in a dream version of Boston and Boston is so steeped in so many different kinds of history. It's inescapable when we talk about Boston. We're talking about the past and the present..

"In Minneapolis now here in Boston Mayor Marty Walsh responded to that call by promising to reallocate a total of twelve million dollars from the police overtime budget to public health initiatives. That's about twenty percent of that budget. Activists have long criticized over time as an unaccountable system that police officers can use to enrich themselves.

Is that you know? The Police Department will? Electronically! Send evidence You know it it. You know their physical evidence usually what they're sending over. It's an affidavit, so that would normally be sent electronically. and you know if there's a large file like a like a nine one one call audio file or video evidence that gets shared via dropbox, or you know some of their sharing platform in Boston, you know what the defense attorneys are telling us. Is that this always coming over in paper in CDs or DVD's you know sort of paper transcripts, etc, and you know, sometimes It even holds cases where you know. They're waiting for an officer to bring the physically. Bring the evidence over, and you know what a lot of.

"The state Senate is debating a sweeping police reform bill this afternoon after several procedural delays last week among the proposals limits on the use of force by law enforcement changes to what's called qualified immunity for police officers and the creation of a new independent entity to certify and decertify officers. Shortly. We'll have an update on the debate. Live from the State House, but I. What a police officers think of the bill. We're joined by the president of the Boston Police patrolman's association Larry Calderoni. He's been on the Boston police since nineteen ninety four. Thanks for taking the time to join us today, officer Calderoni. I appreciate the time. Thank you very much for having me mystere. So I'd like officer to start with the big picture. What sparked this current push for change was the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police in May I. Want to start by asking for your reaction to that incident. And do you think this is a time for policing reform? Well to answer both questions. Thank you Let's start with. The horrible actions that took place in Minneapolis. I've said it time and time again on different shows and being questioned. You don't have to be a police officer to know what happened in Minneapolis is horrible and wrong. Luckily in Massachusetts. We haven't experienced anything close to this, nor do I think we will We are extremely well trained, very well, educated and again. It's a tragedy would happen out there, and we should not be paid it with the same brush here in Massachusetts as they are in other parts of the country, but it was a horrible. Do you feel that by pursuing police reform here in the Commonwealth that the police officers here in the Commonwealth are being painted with the same brush as those in Minneapolis. I don't think that the legislation itself is panting us with the same brush I look at it from a different standpoint. This is not the first conversation that's happened on Beacon Hill wish so-called police reform formerly the legislative director for the Patrolman's Association and I was working on Beacon Hill on matters such as this I. Look at Massachusetts, Boston specific, but I will go on the record for the whole Commonwealth I believe that Massachusetts has. The best policing in the country and I know everyone says that depending what geographical location you speaking but. I make that claim.

If everybody else's into, it will watch the show during that period of time, it's hard to watch the show. It's really it's you know. There's been a lot of disappointments large and small, especially for performing artists over these last three or four months because our voices have been silenced we we can't do what it is. We do which is bringing people together in community for a shared emotional experience. The fourth of July is just the biggest and most prominent of of those moments and having done. Five Straight Fourth of July's in Boston and having worked for several years before that was orchestras I don't I. Never had a fourth of July off for thirty years out of what to do, if I can take suggestions from the audience. That would be great. Yeah no kidding. I watched that you guys. Do want to ask you. Is there anything that's possible this year because it's virtual, that hasn't been in the past with the spectacular. Well. It's a really interesting question you know. Even though we only announced it relatively short time ago, we've pretty much been thinking. Since the end March, it didn't take a genius to figure out that we may have trouble with a life alive half-million person that in the current situation and we were thinking about. We need to stay in that place. I mean for so many people their understanding of the way they celebrate the holidays. The Boston pops in the. The center of that and so we want to put a show on. We knew we had lots of great material from previous years, but we also didn't want to just raw rerun It's one thing to do a retrospective, but we're in such a unique time. I mean not just in terms of the pandemic that is shut so many things down on a worldwide scale, but also with the the recent. The recent unrest about of. About, you know uncovering the very obvious and ongoing racial justice in this country. All those things need to be contextualised I mean we've always felt that. The concert was not just a list together. Ever every July fourth and go Rah Rah, but it was of not only a celebration, but it was also an honest look at. What we still needed to commit ourselves to to achieve this dream. This called America. Keith I WANNA stay on that theme from an and I.

It's been a month since the protests that we organize and to this day we have not necessarily been acknowledged, feel like we've gone genuine acknowledgement from the mayor, and from a lot of other city officials In the sense of not just saying hey, we hear you, but showing it and committing yourself to actually listening to what we have to say, and then from there a lot of organizers in the city dot has been doing work far longer than we have Do have very specific demands whether that was the police weather that with like the budget and we're here to support them and the demands that they have. And Vicky on the budget has been passed by the city. Now you were pushing for a you know a ten percent reduction. What is next for you? Yeah you know like. The mayor declared racism to be a public health emergency, and then you continue not to do what it took. To actually address the issue? He he proposed twelve million cut, which was convenient to two percent of overall budget of the PD budget you know and so and all the counselors, they they. They always mentioned how they've got so many letters and emails and calls about this issue way more than ever before and yet you know out of five eight. voted to keep the budget is is an only five? Really listen to us. Demands you know. More work to do there. Yeah we need. We need them to actually do the work that they're trying to say that.

It was a really great example of what happens when you give black and Brown students, no forces and money you know the possibilities that can come out of it you know, and that really inspired me. and I got involved in the Mayor's council out Sophomore Year, and. got experience learning from so many other from so many other young people from around the city, constantly meeting, and talking about how we see Boston, and wherever you want it.

I thank you for having me. And hold, and we're also joined by Vicki on petit-homme. She's a regional organizer with March for our lives and worked with local organizers on an effort to defend the Boston police budget by at least ten percent. Welcome to you to Viviana. Hello. Thanks for having me. So I. Let me start by asking both of you to reflect on this past month of activism where you have been young leaders to things feel different to you, and maybe you can go first. yeah, I can definitely touch on that a little bit. thing they do feel different in a sense, but they also and I think that a lot of young black people young black especially can speak to the. They feel very much the same I feel like the conversation got I. personally have been having and the things that I've been doing have been things that I've been talking about and doing for years now but in. In a sense, it does feel different because it, it does feel different, because it feels like people are starting to pay more attention. and more people are starting to join the movement so the work the work hasn't been happening to work has been happening for decades and for centuries but in a sense this moment is something. We do have a spotlight of attention I. think is a little bit different from what was happening before. Vicky do you agree? How are you reflecting on this winter so? I definitely agree with that sentiment. I think also though I think the sense of unity that Boston is feeling. It is somewhat different. No at the that Black Boston hosted and great job to You know like Twenty Six K. showed up. You know during a pandemic you. I feel like Boston has never really been so denied. It's not only that I think people aren't so. By rhetoric. They're demanding actual substantial changes, and these politicians are getting busted. I think and I think we're really starting to see a new ways of of activism. And, this is just the beginning Fisher. Holding Viviana just talked about the scale of the march in Boston the large when that happened on May thirty first. It's started with an idea. You and three other young women had on twitter. You're very active on twitter. The march as well. I'm sure our listeners and you remember. There was chaos and looting later on in the evening..
